Hydrogen, Energy of the Future
The main challenge for wide implementation of hydrogen energy is in the development of efficient hydrogen storage and supply systems, which have to meet a number of requirements.
Compressed hydrogen gas (CHG) in steel and composite cylinders at pressures ranging from 200 to 700 bar are currently the preferred methods for industrial hydrogen storage applications, where liquid hydrogen supply is not available. CHG has advantages of quite high gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity, short refuelling time, and virtually unlimited flow rate of hydrogen supply. At the same time, the volumetric hydrogen storage capacity of the CHG systems is low (< 35 kg H2/m3). These systems also suffer from two main issues - low safety and extremely expensive refuelling infrastructure - both are associated with high pressure of the stored hydrogen.
H2Heat’s novel hydrogen storage system has high capacity, low cost and low-pressure hydrogen storage system. H2Heat stores large amount of hydrogen atoms in its novel solid-state nanocomposite based on complex metallic alloys using atomic bond and micro-heat transfer system.
Hydrogen handling made easy
How does it work
H2Heat stores large amount of hydrogen atoms using its novel solid-state nanocomposite of complex metallic alloys, state of art tank design and micro-heat transferring system.
Hydrogen has three times the energy content of gasoline
The H2 gas, generated by steam reforming, renewable energies via electrolyzer, etc , passes through a special plate to dissociate the H2 molecules to H+ atoms. H2 atoms diffuse into the material and make chemical bond with storage medium atoms via an exothermal process with 7 kWh/kg H2 usable heat at 160C and
In de-hydrogenation step the chemical bonds of hydrogen atoms and carrier medium breaks rapidly via an endothermic process with 9 kWh/kgH2 at 160 °C.
